Why Embed Content from another Website?

Any image or video you upload to Journal can only be up to 50mb in size. It is, therefore, worthwhile considering hosting your content on another 3rd party website such as Instagram or Youtube.

Note iconNote: When you upload content to a 3rd party website, be sure to review information such as ownership of copyright.

Exclamation mark iconImportant: Please be aware that if the website you're hosting content on goes offline, the content will also not display on your Journal.

Embedding Content From Instagram, Youtube, etc...

  1. Find the content that you want to embed on your website e.g. a video on Youtube or a image on Instagram.

  2. Then, copy the URL of that image/video.
